Icky Blossoms were playing over at the Clive Bar. I had actually caught their last couple of songs last year upstairs in the very restaurant where we had just eaten, but tonight's set was in the dusty yard of a scruffy bar and all the better for that. So far the day had been astoundingly good, too much already, but the Blossoms, announcing that they were going to "play some dance tunes" just laid it all down right there for us on the rough-sawn stage. They are better known these days, in their own right, not just as a Tilly And The Wall off-shoot, so there was plenty of audience love for 'Heat Lightning'. Their piece de resistance was the song that has recently offended stuck-up pricks back home in Omaha, and it was a joyous shout-along to join the chorus � "Sex to the Devil" indeed. So very impressive.
